    Great Way to Gain Data Science Experience

    Upon completing my PhD I was looking to transition in the data science field. Athough I had self-taught a number of the requisite skills that were needed in addition to scientific training I already posessed, it was very hard to gain any commercial experience. The catch-22 of needing experience to get the experience of an internship of junior position was rather frustrating.

    S2DS offered a great opportunity for me to tackle a real commercial project for a multi-national company. ...

    Dr

    It is a fantastic way to start working on a team basis and building your portfolio. Besides, you get access to extensive networking that gives you the opportunity to gain insights into different fields of the industry where Data Science techniques are applied. If you come straight out from academia, it is one of the best chances to know more about the world business.

    A very useful data science experience

    S2DS provides is a very useful if compressed immersion into the data science world. About 2 of the 5 weeks of the project are mostly devoted to lectures of various kinds. While, given the time constraint, these cannot be expected to go into great depth, they are still useful to get an overview of various subjects, and of some of the existing tools. The core of the bootcamp consists in teamwork (3-5 people) on a "real" project provided by one of their sponsors. The project quality can vary ...

    Intense and very supportive course

     

    I had several years of experience as a Post-Doc and knew the academic job-landscape well, but when I decided to venture forth I realised that I really didn't know anything about how industry operates, nor how to sell my skills.

    S2DS was hugely transformative in this, as the curriculum and applied project are designed to give you an understanding and experience of working in companies. I was impressed with the support network Pivigo put in place for the course: we had ...

    Great start to a data scientist career

    I had been waiting to move into Data Science from Academia for over a year and S2DS gave me the start I needed. I couldn't wait for the live corse so did the virtual one and recommend it if you are in the same position. You have to be motivated but the instrutors on the course do their very best to help with multiple checkins and are always on hand to give advise. I got to meet every person on the course with arranged one-to-one chats so I didn't feel like I was doing this alone.

    Commercial experience and network

    I would recommend S2DS to any scientist interested in a transition to the data science industry. As other reviewers said, the skills are already there, but it's difficult to break through in the industry with only academic positions in the CV and without knowing anyone. S2DS fills both of that gaps, giving the vital commercial experience that is nowadays needed also for entry job levels, and a network to be able to put your foot in the door.
    There is a huge variety of companies at the...

    Perfect transition from academia to data science!

    The 2014 S2DS London summer school provided me with the perfect support and opportunities to transition to data science after leaving astrophysics. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do, but the 'try-before-you-buy' approach allowed me to test out the business world for a month before making my final decision - I loved the company I did my internship with and they wanted to hire me, so I've been happily working there for 2.5yrs now.

    The course itself was excellent and include...

    S2DS Virtual Review

    Before finding out about S2DS I had already decided that I wanted to move into data science, so before applying I had been working my way through a few online courses, as a way to get a broader understanding of the skills needed in data science. And worked on a couple of personal projects based on public datasets, just to get a feel for using some of the tools and an understanding of what public datasets look like. On the programme there was a good mix of people with differen...

    S2DS Remote

    Pros:
    During this program I worked in a team of four with a company in a commercial DS project.

    It is a very intensive program with very interesting webminars, panel discussions and tecnhical support from internal and company mentors.
    At the beginning I was reluctant about how to work remotely in this kind of projects (as I have done all learning/projects by my own in the past), but the countinuous meetings with the team and mentors made the communication and team work ...

    Real-world project experience with excellent support

    I took part in the S2DS Virtual Program in October 2019 while based in Germany. The application process consists of an online application on the Pivigo website, followed by an interview which tests basic technical knowledge as well as asking general motivational questions. About 3 weeks before the program we were given access to several program-specific videos covering things such as programming in Python and R, data visualisation and git. The videos are very clear and great to get started...
